Frequently Asked Questions

What is Generaldentistry?

General dentistry is all about keeping your smile healthy and happy! Your general dentist is like your oral health quarterback - they lead the team that prevents and treats common issues like cavities and gum disease. At your routine checkups, they'll take care of cleanings, fillings, and minor procedures. They can also tackle more complex procedures, or tap into their network of specialists to get your the treatment you need.

What Services Do You Offer?

Your general dentistry visits will include thorough exams to check the health of your teeth and gums, professional cleanings to remove plaque buildup, and x-rays to catch problems early. Fillings and other restorations, like crowns or bridges, are used to treat cavities and damage. Many folks also take advantage of cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening to brighten their smile. Your friends at Carmel Mountain Dental Care offer all these general dentistry services and more to help patients in the Rancho Peñasquitos, Poway, and Carmel Valley areas maintain their oral wellness. You can call (858-484-4880) to set up an appointment today!

Why should I choose Carmel Mountain Dental Care?

The dentists at Carmel Mountain Dental Care make even routine dental visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible. They take time to explain every procedure and are happy to answer any questions you have. They utilize advanced yet gentle technologies so your care is efficient and pain-free. Their friendly hygienists provide expert cleanings tailored to your unique oral health needs. And their wonderful office staff will help you easily schedule appointments and optimize your insurance coverage.

What happens at my first dental appointment?

At your first visit with us, you'll get to meet your dentist face-to-face and have them take a close look at your teeth, gums, and overall oral health status. They'll take any x-rays needed to see what's happening below the surface, and check carefully for early signs of decay or other issues. Based on your specific needs, they'll recommend a personalized treatment plan to keep your smile healthy for years to come. They'll also demonstrate proper brushing and flossing so you can maintain your gains at home. It's the perfect time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have!

How Often should I get my teeth cleaned?

Most adults should have a professional cleaning every 6 months to keep plaque and tartar at bay. But your dentist may suggest more frequent cleanings, like every 3-4 months, if you are prone to buildup or gum disease. Proper cleaning intervals remove bacteria and prevent bigger issues down the road. Your dentist at Carmel Mountain Dental Care will recommend the ideal cleaning schedule tailored just for you!

I have to say, I was pretty impressed with the technology that they have at this office, it truly is state of the art! Thank you Dr. Marissa and team for setting the bar at the dentist! I'd highly recommend you guys to everyone I know :)

A great place to go. I recently switched my family over to this practice b/c it's closer to our home. The office is clean, the staff is very personable, and it's a very high tech office - you can watch TV/videos while you're teeth are being worked on!


Stephanie V.

I have been a patient at CMDC for 3 years now. This place is truly a gem and I will not go anywhere else! I have seen multiple hygienists and two different dentists, they have all treated me with the best care, respect and great service. I have a lot of sensitivity, they keep that in mind and are gentle. They truly go above and beyond for their patients and I no longer dread the dentist! Thank you!
